The Return of 'O Magico: Philippe Coutinho!

The Return of 'O Magico: Philippe Coutinho!

The magician, Philippe Coutinho, is back. His return to form could hardly have occurred at a more opportune time. With Mané, Henderson and Lallana injured, and the stakes as high as ever in the race for a Champions League position, Coutinho's renewed confidence feels as influential and important as a new signing. Like all top players, he delivered when the pressure was on - the Merseyside Derby - a match which he seized and made his own. He dominated from the …
The Sakho Debate

The Sakho Debate

Is there another player that divides opinion more than Mamadou Sakho? I know he isn’t in a red shirt at the moment, but this debate is starting to brew - therefore I thought I’d finally put it to bed. To be honest, it’s starting to get a wee bit irrelevant. Whenever our defence struggles to keep or clean sheet or after we win/lose a game, the first thing I hear from Liverpool fans is ‘Sakho’. There have been subsets of supporters …

VIDEO: Nina Kauser Show - Cup Competitions Vs The League

The Nina Kauser show on YouTube is back! After my debut episode on Anfield Index TV last week I am back with another interesting question for my awesome Twitter followers! This time I asked: You can watch the video above! There were some really interesting responses and I go through them as well as give my own take on the question. What would you do? Should Liverpool forgo the cup competitions and focus on the league? You can leave your point of view in the comments …
The Suarez Legacy

The Suarez Legacy

It seems both an age but also a short fleeting period since Suarez last donned the red of Liverpool. Yet almost three seasons after his departure, Liverpool look no better in their league position despite the reinvestment of the £63m they received for him. With Liverpool facing off against Suarez, and his fellow Barcelona teammates on Saturday, the question remains that after three seasons and heavy investment, why have Liverpool failed to replace Suarez? It is easier to break this …
What is

What is "Success" for Liverpool FC?

Back to the Future As the dust settles on another domestic season we get an opportunity to assess where our great club is at, and the journey we can reasonably expect it to bring us on in the season to come.  As discussed on the LFC Daytrippers pod last week, some fans are happy to just enjoy watching their team play an exciting brand of football.  Any success achieved along the way is treated as a bonus.  The big deal …
Liverpool's Next Season Syndrome

Liverpool's Next Season Syndrome

"Next season is our year." "We'll be better next season." "Just wait until after the summer." "The push for Champions League is next year." You've heard them all. I've heard them all. I've said most of them, or the like. Such is the life of a Liverpool Football Club supporter. Recently, always just within touching distance of what we want. But that's not true. We haven't been in touching distance in years (with the exception of the exceptional in 2013/2014). …
Home Comforts & The Anfield Factor

Home Comforts & The Anfield Factor

A few months ago, Liverpool had lost the League Cup final to Manchester City, on penalties, then a few days later they exacted a bittersweet 3-0 revenge upon Manchester City at Anfield. Arguably this illustrated Klopp's impressive ability to motivate his players, but when you consider that Liverpool played a weaker side in the latter of the Manchester City fixtures, and were utterly dominant, against a City team that still harboured beliefs of winning the title, only then do you …
Why James Milner is underrated & deserves more credit

Why James Milner is underrated & deserves more credit

Ex City and Villa all rounder James Milner arrived at Anfield bearing no outstanding pressure on his shoulders, definitely not as much as the likes of Benteke, Lallana etc.. A free transfer from a Man.City team who's fan-base were left raging at the prospect of 'Boring James Milner' departing. What could possibly go wrong? His wage bill. £120,000 a week is a staggering amount for a players who was seemingly brought in as 'back up' for Henderson, Can, etc... Heck, just a few thousand more would have …
Liverpool - A Home Away from Home

Liverpool - A Home Away from Home

For The Love of the Club In September 1999 I made my first trip to the city of Liverpool.  We were playing United at Anfield and I just had to get there.  I was 19, and accompanied by two of my best mates.  Dinny, was a fellow Reds fan, but Eddie was a United supporter.  He still wanted to come for the weekend and enjoy the sights while maybe sampling what some of the local bars had to offer. The …
The Liverpool Kids - The Future or No Future?

The Liverpool Kids - The Future or No Future?

As seasons go, this one has been something of a bonus for those Liverpool players looking to make the break through proper into fully fledged first team players. The arrival of Jurgen Klopp offered a fresh start, and the run in the FA Cup a platform on which to grasp that opportunity and show the boss why they warranted more than just a spot in the shadows going forward. But now as we enter the twilight of a season that …
